Random stuff

I've not blogged in forever. Here are some random things going on in our lives....

*potty training a 2 year old is hard work. I'll be steam cleaning my carpet and sofa tomorrow.

*time out and standing in the corner is more effective then spanking in our house. Even if you make her stand in the corner in a department store in the mall. Yes, I did that.

*31 pounds gone. Still have a long way to go

*I've been reading books like crazy. Sometimes one a day. This has to do with the fact that I am averaging about 4 hours of sleep a day. It sucks. Reading is something I can do and not disturbe the entire house. The library is our friend. Although, my book club picked a 600 page book this month....with small font. That is going to take me a couple of days. Geesh!

*heartbroken over family drama that I got dragged into when I specifically asked NOT to be.


*visiting the Zoo once a week for our ZooTwos class which is awesome! Where else will your 2 year old get to pet a sloth?

*music has become something that K loves. I can hear her singing in the mornings before I go and get her out of bed. We do the hokey pokey a lot in our house too.

*K's favorite books right now are If You Give A Pig A Party and If You Give A Moose A Muffin. She likes to read the pig one herself and it's funny because I think she has memorized some of it and will recite it on the correct page.

*Brian working MAJOR amounts of overtime.

*Feeling guilty because I've not taken a photo in over a month. What's wrong with me?

I know that there has been a ton more stuff going on in our lives, but I just can't think of all of it right now. Okay, I can't think of anything else. Blog ya later!

J screams "no pee pee" whenever I try to pot him on the toilet at home, but take him to a restaurant and it's "pee pee now" as he grabs himself and points to the restroom. Good times.

Miss K is a busy girl! Maybe we can make a zoo date?

Wow 31#'s! Can you post what you are doing/not doing?
